Imagine dying of starvation. Bringing yourself to a point of begging for donations to live and nobody hearing your call. Now imagine your voice is mute and you can’t find paper to write a sign to even ask for help as you slowly die.
Is this image funny?
No. It isn’t.
I give out of my own pocket anytime I can. As I watch people constantly judge the homeless ,the underpaid ,the underprivileged, and the unfortunate. I’ve witnessed those in need laughed at. Used as an example instead of being helpful we are a culture who would rather watch others suffer instead of helping. We laugh at our fellow humans pain as if the shoe could never be on the other foot.
Today I encourage you to find someone in help. Go look for them and dig in your pocket and help. Buy someone a sandwich. Donate to a homeless shelter. Give someone something other than your prayers and best wishes today. Let’s make an actual difference in a real person’s life this holiday season.
They don’t need your judgement and they damn sure do not need your laughter. They need your help. $1.50 can order a sandwich 50c can buy a bottle of water. Be of service.
I’m not laughing because it’s not funny.
Sending you all peace and blessings
